AMA Supercross - Anaheim1 - Round 1
The 2022 Supercross Season kicked off in Anaheim, CA after a two year absence due to Covid.
Marvin Musquin was rumored to be flying leading up to the season and confirmed the rumors with a 4th place in the 450 main event.
Jason Anderson started off the season with new team Monster Energy Kawasaki and had a good night going making a pass for 2nd on Barcia late in the 450 main event. Barcia would regain the position taking out Anderson in the process. Anderson would manage to come back to 10th by the checked flag.
Marvin Musquin: “I’m happy right now. It was a long and tough day, with quite a fight for the Main Event. I did my best with outside gate pick and I made some good passes, so I was pumped on the riding and the intensity early on. I made a couple mistakes and I lost contact with Cooper, and then Malcolm passed me. I tried to pass him to the inside but unfortunately, he railed the corner and we hit each other – he didn’t know I was coming – and we both went down. I got up and came back to fourth place, that was amazing. I’m pumped on the push and with the results, to be honest, with all the drama that happened during the main.”
Jason Anderson: “I definitely think today could have gone better. My speed was right there with the top guys, and I felt like my KX450SR was handling so well. In the main, I spent a few laps planning my pass for second and did the best I could to make a clean move and ride away. Unfortunately, I can’t control how other riders respond, but that’s racing. It was a tough one, but we live to fight another day. Time to switch gears and focus on Oakland.”
